When signing up, Covve will automatically sync with your phone's address book and all the contacts on your device will be added to Covve.

Covve currently supports contacts that :

  •  Come from all major address book accounts (such as Google Contacts, Exchange, iCloud and Yahoo)
  •  Are stored directly on your phone

Covve doesn't work with SIM contacts due to severe data limitations. 

If you store contacts on your SIM card, they need to be moved to your phone's storage or to an online address book. 

Tip: It is good practice to move contacts from your phone/SIM to an online addressbook (e.g. Google). This will make sure your contacts are never lost (e.g. if your phone is lost) and will also enable you to signup to Covve.
